Mary and Jesus II is a fine art photograph by Cheri Lomonte. It is printed on soft matte canvas and wrapped on .75″ lightweight, select pine wood that is properly reinforced for added rigidity and strength. Prints have mirrored edges. A nonyellowing, UV resistant topcoat adds protection, durability, and print life. Your artwork arrives with a certificate of authenticity and is ready to hang.
Mary and Jesus II is based on an original painting titled Madonna and Child. The original artist, Berlinghiero, painted this icon sometime in the 1230s using tempera and gilding on a wood panel. It currently resides in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Dimensions of Mary and Jesus II: 9″ x 14″ x .75″
A note from Cheri: I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art recently. What a delightful surprise I encountered in this icon!
The artist who painted this image lived nearly eight centuries ago. And yet, it remains almost pristine in condition because generations of people cared for it. Today, we continue to enjoy this art and revel, as people of the artist’s time did, in the beauty of the Most Holy Blessed Mother who gave us her Son.
I find it remarkable that we are blessed with treasures such as this icon. Art that survives. Not all of the images on this Site have survived the ravages of war. And although the artist of this icon, Berlinghiero, did not sign his name to the piece, his legacy remains. His art still inspires us today.
